Rangers continue to muster very little offense

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers offense started Saturday night's game much like the season began for the Rangers -- with so much promise. But in another effort that has mirrored the season for Texas, Saturday's first-inning sizzle was followed by plenty of fizzle as the Rangers dropped a 6-3 decision to Kansas City. Shin-Soo Choo's first pitch leadoff homer was the lone offensive...

Arencibia's RBI double to left -- brought two runners home...

Offense can't dig Rangers out of early hole

ARLINGTON, Texas - Consistent pitching hasn't been the lone problem for the Texas Rangers during their summer swoon. An offense that's unable to pick up the pitchers has also plagued the Rangers. That was on display once again Saturday night as Colby Lewis was touched for five runs in the first four innings before settling down. And while the Rangers did rally to make things interesting...

Rangers First Baseman J.P. Arencibia Pitches Scoreless Inning (Video)

Texas Rangers first baseman J.P. Arencibia used to catch knuckleballer R.A. Dickey during his days with the Toronto Blue Jays. Arencibia must’ve learned a thing or two from the 2012 National League CY Young Award winner because he was throwing some nasty pitches earlier this week. The Tampa Bay Rays held a commanding 10-1 lead over the Rangers in the ninth inning of Wednesday...

Astros mascot trolls Rangers Arencibia during game

Texas Rangers catcher J.P. Arencibia appears to have a rivalry brewing with a notable figure of another MLB team. No, it isn't Jeff Samardzija of the A's, or even Albert Pujols of the Angels. It is none other than Orbit, the green, furry mascot of the Houston Astros. The quarrel between the two appeared to begin in the fourth inning of Saturday night's game when Arencibia tossed...

Texas Chisox Massacre

You know when Shin-Soo Choo (2-for-4, 2 runs and his 10th homer) is hitting homers there's a Dong Party going on. Dong Party is also my lead single off my album, "Who Let In All These Guys?"

Rangers come close but awful July continues

ARLINGTON, Texas - If you're looking for a highlight to describe July for the Texas Rangers all you have to is watch one play in the top of the sixth inning of Tuesday's game.
